Yep, another Vietnam terrain update

OK, had time this evening to "nearly" finish up the first terrain board. Posting some pictures here of it...yes, the Germans are still on the board.

I think this board looks pretty good so far. The reason that I say that it is "nearly" finished is that I have ordered the stuff I am going to use in the rice paddies (see this link) but it has not yet arrived. Perhaps tomorrow?Once the paddy plants come in I'll pour the water resin in too.

I also bought a very small resin statue of "Buddha" to use as a shrine. Still processing on which board it will be a part of. Also, I am going to make at two more buildings for the village.

The jungle on this board, and indeed all of my boards, is light jungle. I can make additional stands of trees to place on the board when heavier jungle is called for, and this will minimize some of the hassle of moving miniatures on a table with fixed terrain...then again, this is not the Seven Years War with its perfect ranks of close order troops. This is Vietnam, loose formations is the norm.
